Plan your off-season canvas work

Now is the time to start thinking about repairs, maintenance or replacing your canvas. As you make your plans for decommissioning your boat for the season, take a good look at your canvas. Does it need couple new zippers, or maybe some restitching. Are your windows so foggy and brittle that you can no longer see …

BOAT COVERS

 

Full Bridge Enclosure for a Silverton in Charcoal Tweed Sunbrella

At first I thought the Charcoal Tweed Sunbrella was going to be too dark for such a large boat. But Sunbrella’s tweed patterns add a nice touch of color without getting too dark (or in some cases, too light). Solid black would have been too much, and the grey would have washed the boat out. This …

Flybridge Enclosure for a Trojan 32

We designed this enclosure with two big front and side windows to increase visibility and airflow. We also designed the aft window and doorway to either be rolled up or removed completely. The aft window is a separate panel from the skirt below. This allows for easy removal (or roll up) of the window without …

Custom Hatch Screens

Made from a Micro No-See-Um Fabric (800 holes/in) to keep even the smallest biting bugs out, but let the cool breeze in. These screens are custom-made to fit your hatch opening exactly. Screens can be held in place by a weighted collar (see photos) or by snaps.

Updating a 25′ Watkins Sailboat with new Cushions and a Canvas Magazine Rack

First we re-covered the cushions with a Sunbrella fabric that had a two-tone, brown speckled pattern that suited the male owner to a tee. Next we covered the unsightly …

Laced-on T-Top Bimini for a Rigid-bottom Inflatable EPA Boat

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) work hard making sure the the waters we use are safe, and their boats take a beating because of it. The old T-Top on this boat was sun bleached and on it’s last thread. We replaced it with Sea Mark, a product made from Sunbrella which has a rubber coating …

Laced-on Bimini Top for NOAA Boat

This former Coast Guard boat now works for NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration). On duty 12 months a year, these boats take on the worst that Mother Nature can dish out. Her old Bimini Top was evidence of that. The top we made was out of Sunbrella, the best marine canvas out there. And …
